Rich and creamy Sausage and Pumpkin Pasta made with ground sausage, pumpkin puree, garlic, sage, and lots of Parmesan cheese – comfort food at its best.
Pumpkin puree in savory dishes is one of my all-time favorite ways to use the stuff! I feel like we think pumpkin recipes and we go straight to those yummy pumpkin cookies and pumpkin bread. I’m here to convert you to pumpkin in every dish, all day long, including dinner!
Pumpkin puree is magical if you ask me. It’s nutritious, inexpensive, easy to find, and easy to use. It adds beautiful color, a subtle sweetness, and a rich creaminess to dishes. One of my favorite ways to use pumpkin is with pasta! When the dish is made, the pasta looks super cheesy and tastes extra rich. But the secret is the pumpkin puree. Sausage and Pumpkin Pasta is one of my favorite dishes to make for company, because pumpkin is such a surprising ingredient. The sausage, sage, and just a bit of cream and Parmesan make this pasta dish a favorite without much work on your end. I can’t wait for you to try it.
This pumpkin recipe is part of pumpkin week! A week that I dedicate on the blog to all things pumpkin – sweet and savory alike. I’ve done this every year for a few years now and I enjoy it so much. I hope it inspires you to get in the kitchen and gives you a few more ideas on how to use pumpkin besides the classic pumpkin cookies.
